Im having DNS issues with my ipad on our local domain network.

We run AD with a windows 2003/08 domain.

The DNS server is located on the domain controller hostname: DC4 (192.168.1.51/52)

From the ipad, im successfully connected, it grabs the DNS servers .51 and .52

Im successfully able to PING the DNS servers by IP address.

When i try to do a DNS lookup on the device it times out.

I get a "server failure the name server was unable to process this query of the domain may not exist"

Am i missing something?

Can you do a packet capture on the server?  If so, this should be helpful in determining the problem.

Try and manually set your network settings on the iPad and use OpenDNS 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 for your DNS servers.  If sites will resolve with that enabled then its a DNS issue on your network, if that doesn't fix the problem then the network settings on the iPad are probably corrupt (a common issue on IOS) and need to be reset.

Just had to set the 'search domain' or some setting to mydomain.com and then it started working
